My family hails from Red River Co., TX. They were Coffman and Phillips. My grandmother was Sarah Adelaide "Addie" Coffman; her mother was Euphemia Stell-Coffman. Euphemia had two sisters, Sytheria and Sarah, still in Ireland. When Sytheria and Sarah were en route to the US, Sarah drowned. We presume their immigration occurred in the early 1800's, as my grandmother was born in 1860. After arriving in some point in the US, perhaps from GA, TN or KY, Sytheria married a man whose last name was Thomas and bore a son, Jack Thomas; subsequently, they divorced. She then married {in Delta or Red River County, Texas we presume}, a man whose last name was Kerbow, and bore a son, Wesley Kerbow.
Last April, we went to RR County {Detroit} and removed the contents of our Coffman-Phillips homestead here to San Antonio. Last week, while going through thousands of photographs, we noticed pictures of Sytheria and Sarah, Jack Thomas and Wesley Kerbow, plus notes on Sytheria's and Sarah's immigration to the US. Red River County/Lamar County and Delta County are in far NE Texas, including Paris, Texas.
To date, we are unable to locate anyone whose family tree may integrate Sytheria or Sarah.

Could Sytheria be an Irish connection to your Stell clan?
